AsyncComponent for preact

This is the guts of preact-cli's import X from 'async!./x' feature, extracted into a standalone library.

It creates a wrapper component that, when rendered, lazy-loads your real component. While loading, any SSR'd DOM is preserved intact.

Option 1: lazy()

This is the API of React.lazy() or preact-iso's lazy(), but it does not use Suspense.

Rendering Interactive HTML using Preact

It's possible to render HTML in Preact using the dangerouslySetInnerHTML prop, however doing so bypasses the Virtual DOM entirely. This may be reasonable for static HTML, but interactivity can be a little painful to graft on without VDOM.

There is another technique available that melds HTML to Virtual DOM without such limitations.

Preact: Progressive Hydration

Preact now supports seamless progressive hydration.

Any component can throw during hydration (or new tree creation like a route change!), and if a component somewhere higher in the tree catches that via componentDidCatch, hydration gets paused.

Re-rendering the tree (via setState, etc) simply resumes hydration where it left off.
